Funky design in Fat Banana toys

Further to my post about crappy toys, take a look at the groovy selection of old-fashioned and funky toys on sale at Fat Banana Feet.

I came across the site after its owner, a South African, commented on my post about children's playground rhymes: she named her business (which is based in the UK) after the classic chant, 'Skinny Malinky Long-Legs, Fat Banana Feet'.

It's heartening to to see such beautiful design and quality in kids' toys. My favourites: a line of 'Ugly Dolls' (see above), a pink Fantasy Flyer pedal plane, and a pair of bowwow dog speakers.

Another classic is this wooden rocking motorbike (below). And, if you're a Harley fan with a bit of cash to spare, check out this wooden beauty.
